How to Get Free Amazon Gift Cards

Amazon often has the best deals on all types of products, and it's the go-to online store for most people when they can't find something in a brick and mortar store. It's always great to get something for free, so many people search for ways to find free Amazon gift cards. Although most free gift cards take some work to receive, there are almost always some available. Here are eight of the best ways to get free Amazon cards:

1. Mechanical Turk

Mechanical Turk is a branch of Amazon where you can complete tasks for small monetary rewards. Your rewards can be paid to your Amazon account as a gift card, or they can be transferred to your bank account. The tasks are repetitive but simple and easy to complete while watching TV or listening to music. Common tasks include checking documents for typos and transcribing data from receipts or product labels.

2. Bing Rewards

If you use Bing as your primary search engine, you can earn Amazon gift cards just from searching. Sign up for Bing Rewards, and every time you do a search, you'll have points added to your account. Each month, you can earn bonus points depending on how many searches you do. There is a daily limit to how many points you can earn, though, so you shouldn't waste time performing hundreds of searches per day in hopes of earning more points.

Bing Rewards is one of the only ways to earn Amazon gift cards in a completely passive way, and you can accumulate many points each month if you do the maximum number of searches per day. Anyone 13 and older can participate.

3. GPT Sites

GPT sites, or Get Paid To sites, give you reward points for performing tasks such as watching videos, completing surveys, or purchasing products through their affiliate links. Once you accumulate enough points, you can cash them in for Amazon gift cards.

The most popular GPT site is Swagbucks, which offers daily polls, surveys, and promotions. MyPoints is another popular site that offers rewards for polls, promotions, and paid games. PrizeRebel gives users rewards points for ordering products from Amazon through their site. RecycleBank, a site devoted to recycling and environmentally-friendly living, gives you points for reading articles with eco-friendly tips.

4. Market Research Surveys

Market research sites are similar to GPT sites, but they only offer surveys. They usually offer surveys from companies who need feedback about their products, so you can answer questions about your experiences with different products or services. Popular market research survey sites include:

• Opinion Outpost
• Valued Opinions
• MySurvey
• SurveySpot

5. Amazon Promotions

Amazon sometimes offers gift cards after you spend a certain amount of money. For example, they occasionally offer a $25 gift card for spending $50 or $75 in their grocery department.

If you make a purchase on Amazon just to receive the gift card, it's not really a free gift card. However, if you purchase something you were already planning on buying during a promotion, the gift card will be a nice bonus.

6. Amazon Credit Card

If you're good with paying back your credit card monthly, signing up for an Amazon credit card can boost your credit score and provide you with a free gift card. When you're approved, you'll automatically receive a free Amazon card. The Amazon Store Card offers a $10 gift card, the Amazon Rewards Visa Signature Card offers $50, and the Amazon Prime Rewards Visa Signature Card offers $70.

7. Credit Card Rewards

Most credit card companies offer Amazon gift cards as a cash back reward. If you don't want to sign up for an Amazon credit card, check to see if your current cards offer Amazon cards as a reward.

8. Amazon Trade In Program

With the Amazon trade-in program, you can trade your items for gift cards. They often look for:

• Laptops
• Movies
• Cell phones
• Music players
• Textbooks

You can visit Amazon's trade-in store to search for items they're looking for. They'll provide you with a free shipping label, and you'll have one week to ship the items to receive a gift card.
